CAN's #1 goal in literacy is to help students develop a love for reading. When young people see themselves & others expressed in story, they are more likely to be self-motivated to keep reading and practice writing to share their own stories.

At every CAN location, students receive diverse, high-quality, nutritious food in our educational programs.


Girls have arms around each other

Interwoven throughout every program is a culture of role modeling mindfulness, resilience, and healthy interpersonal relationships. Students are given the language and tools they need to navigate the social world and better name and manage their emotions.

Social-Emotional Development
